Holiday gifts that children will find valuable for life Share Written By AAFMAA Team Tags Military Spouses & Dependents Life Insurance 2015-12-15 Most of us spend lots of money around the holidays on gifts – especially for the children in our lives. Nothing beats the look on a child’s face when they unwrap the number one item on their wish list. The reality, however, is that no gift stays a child’s favorite for very long. Many won’t last until next month, let alone next year. Well, there is a way to give the children in your life a gift that will have true value for the rest of their lives – and beyond (and at a fraction of the price of the latest trendy toy). Purchasing life insurance coverage for your children and grandchildren may seem unnecessary for some people but it is a great way to get them started in securing their financial future. It’s also a great way to introduce them to AAFMAA. Children and grandchildren who have a policy with AAFMAA prior to age 24 can continue to purchase insurance from AAFMAA in the future.
